Today's style inspiration came from the New Yorkers. They love mixing neons with neutrals during this Summer season.

Check out one my favorite look below!


Love the color combination.. the neutral grey with neon orange paired with earth-toned handbag and shoes, and also love the tee's twist on the waist.. :)

What colors match the black-and-white stripes


Outfit Styling

One of my blog's readers asked me "What colors match the black-and-white stripes?"

For me, this versatile print just seem to go with, well, pretty much everything.. any colors or prints, and adds a fun graphic element to any outfit.

The black-and-white striped garment could be called a new "plain look", just like when we wear an outfit with one solid color such as: black, white, grey/charcoal, camel, khaki, and any other plain natural colors.

So, basically we simply can put on any colors or almost any prints as a splash of color to the black-and-white striped garment, whether the styling will make a chic matching outfit, or instead, create a stylish miss-matching outfit.. :)

The colors/prints addition could be in a form of a scarf, a jewelry (necklace, bracelet, ring, brooch, etc), shoes we wear, or a bag.

One thing you must note is the thickness/width of those stripes. The thinner the stripes, the more "plain" it would look. Big stripes are bold, differ with the pinstripes that look more "plain" and less contrast.

Here are some examples of the styling:

Some of the examples are from Abaya Addict, an American abayas online shop based in Dubai. They have a great range of beautiful abayas, many black-and-white striped pieces, especially in their Summer 2012 collection, completed with how they style up those stripes..

The most common match for the black-and-white stripes is red:

The stripes also match perfectly with black, white, or dark grey (for sure..^_^):

Another fabulous match is matching the stripes with a colour yellow-mustard or patchwork prints (like I wrote in my previous post):


 Or, with floral prints as seen in 10 Crosby Derek Lam Spring 2012 collection:

 Or, with the cobalt blue:

Or, with the fresh leaf colour-y green:

My favorite would be the fresh green.. :)

And those stripes also will look super cool if matched with a black leather jacket, or with a lavender handbag, blue pair of jeans, or with a brown booties.

For a nautical look, adds the colour navy blue and red onto the black-and-white striped outfit.

So.. black-and-white stripes with a splash of color? It's a definitely yes!

Do you love to wear black-and-white stripes? Do you like them big and bold, or thin with less contrast-y look? Show us in the comments your favourite colors/prints to go along with those stripes.

Chloe Jones 'covered style' collection


Style Inspiration 

Graduate Fashion Week Gold Award winner Chloe Jones from Bath Spa University
Womenswear designer Chloe Jones, a student from Bath Spa University (one of UK's top fashion universities), showcasing her collection, entitled Our father who art in heaven, at the Graduate Fashion Week, UK, and scooped the Graduate Fashion Week Gold Award yesterday.

What attracted my attention is the style of her collection.. it is full covered (even though some of the designs are still not modest from Islamic perspective for its sheer-ness).

Are they inspired by Muslim women's wear?; Or, the opposite, this collection can be a style inspiration for Muslim women.
It is a mix of ethereal printed full-length skirts with slouchy hooded tops, inspired by gothic architecture and stained glass windows. The range was a combination of sportwear with couture detailing for a very modern feel.

In shades of grey and a Wing print, volumous silk dress fall to the floor beneath organza hoodies and marl jerseys which are heavily adorned with metallic embroidery and embellishment.

Here are some from the collection's photoshoot:
